Grant hinges on Facebook vote

Internet votes will determine the fate of a grant for play equipment for McMinnville’s new barrier-free, inclusive playground.

The McMinnville Kiwanis Club entered a contest for a $25,000 grant from Kiwanis International. To make the finals in the Legacy of Play contest, the local project needs to finish among the top 10.

If it does, its propsects look very good, based on the criteria. However, the project is up against scores of others, some of them being proposed in larger locales.

To vote, see “click on the picture to enter” on the club website, found at, or visit, click on “view entries” and scroll down until you find the McMinnville entry.

Participants can cast additional votes every 24 hours through May 27. A Facebook account is required.
